Montessori Kids Universe is where children learn to love learning!
Learning in our schools extends far beyond basic language development and building foundational mathematical skills. Extending beyond the traditional elements of the Montessori classroom, at Montessori Kids Universe we offer our students a wide range of MKU enrichment activities. Each of the enrichment activities that we offer provides a different benefit and a different experience.
Yoga has many benefits that we believe are important for our students. Physically yoga enhances flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. Mentally, yoga improves concentration and provides a sense of calmness and relaxation.
Children love planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables in our schools. Watching the plants in our beautiful gardens come to life and then enjoying the fruits of their labor! Our MKU children enjoy working in our gardens several times per week.
We are proud to nurture, inspire and educate children, intrinsically developing a lifelong love of learning. Contact MKU Short Pump with the contact information below.
